These events will take place at the McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum, providing you the unique opportunity to watch the bridge lift from inside the bridge with the gears and counterweight on display.

The Bridge Lift Viewing is $15 per person and includes access to the Bridgehouse Museum and an interpretation of the bridge lift as it is happening by our staff.

In previous years, we have offered breakfast as part of the bridge lift viewing. We are working to secure a breakfast for this coming season, however if we are unable to provide a light breakfast you will be informed a week ahead of time. If no breakfast is provided a discounted rate of $12 per person will be honored.

If you would like to make a reservation, please call the museum front desk at (312) 977-0227 with the date and the number of people in your party or email jcoles@chicagoriver.org. Our capacity for each event is 35 people.
